Say Bloomy, don't you live out on a farm? If so, why don't you construct a fleshing beam on your own. I think you should be old enough. It would require much work and can be made from wood scraps or a small log. Give it a try.

Would a 2x6 piece of lumber work for the beam?

Yes it will, just cut a tapered end on it and smooth it down. I have used one for years.

Here probably isnt the place for this but here goes anyway....

@ bloomy & redneckH = This is how easy it is fellas, even i did it. These are the 1st 2 pvc boards i ever made earlier this week. There were some scraps left over after cutting & they seemed very sharpish to me. So i got a big idea & fabricated a couple of them into some very workable scrapers. I also have some other homemade fleshers, a big metal spoon i made sharp with a file & the other is machine cut alum. square stock w/ a pvc handle....whatever works. I'll let you know how the boards work. Thought this pictorial might help you make & aquire what you are looking for. Best regards,

YP

lol...yeah........i got that & several other good pokes from the tacks i use to pin my marten with. The 1 thing i hav'nt yet ever learned when picking them up to check ect is to watch out for them nasty little buggers sticking out the other side... :|

The pvc scraper seemed to do good for what little i did with it. Not much work on a marten for them. The boards have not been broken in yet with the exception of the smaller 1, & i quickly realized i liked my table top wood 1 better for doing marten. I'll break the big 1 in here 1 of these days pretty soon on some fox. Got high hopes for it. Seemed sturdy enough when i bunjied it to a rail during the engineering process. I'll let you know how it goes...
